Data Protection Declaration
This data protection declaration informs users of the website www.lawfirm.at (hereinafter the “website”) and other parties concerned within the meaning of the GDPR, particularly clients, about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the law firm Greiter Pegger Kofler & Partners, Maria-Theresien-Str. 24, 6020 Innsbruck, Austria.
Personal data is all data that contains details of personal or factual circumstances, for example a name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, date of birth, age, gender, social security number, video recording, photo, or voice recording of an individual, or biometric data such as fingerprints. It may also include sensitive data, such as health data or data relating to criminal proceedings.
2. Your Rights
When the processing of specific data is legitimate based on the consent of the individual concerned, consent may be revoked at any time, also in part, in an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or in writing to the contact address below (point 13).
Furthermore, every data subject has the right to information about personal data concerning him, to data portability, to correction or deletion of personal data as well as to restriction of or objection to the processing of his personal data, unless this is contrary to the confidentiality of a lawyer. The user can exercise these rights by sending an e-mail to email@example.com or in writing to the contact address below (point 13), unless this is contrary to legal confidentiality.
Finally, the user has a right of complaint to the Austrian Data Protection Authority (www.dsb.gv.at) and to all other national data protection authorities.
Notwithstanding the deletion details given below for the individual data processing, deletion shall not take place insofar as the personal data to be deleted is used for other processing purposes (e.g. self-advertising) in accordance with this data protection declaration.
3. Data Security
Your personal data is protected by appropriate organizational and technical precautions. These precautions concern in particular protection from unauthorised, illegal or also accidental access, processing, loss, misuse and manipulation.
Notwithstanding all efforts to maintain a consistently high level of care, the possibility cannot be excluded that information that you provide to us via the Internet or electronically may be viewed and used by others.
Please note that we therefore accept no liability whatsoever for the disclosure of information due to errors in data transmission and/or unauthorised access by third parties not caused by us (e.g. hacking of email accounts or telephone, interception of faxes).
4. Use of Data
Only such personal data is collected which is necessary to carry out and provide our legal services or other business transactions or which you have voluntarily made available to us.
Personal data will only be processed and transmitted by us in a lawful manner – in particular to fulfil contractual obligations, on the basis of overriding legitimate interests, on the basis of a public interest or a legal obligation or on the basis of a consent.
We will therefore not process the data provided to us for purposes other than those covered by the mandate contract, other contracts or by your consent or otherwise by a provision in accordance with the GDPR (e.g. self-advertisement in the sense of point 9). This does not apply to the use for statistical purposes, provided that the data provided has been made anonymous.
5. Transfer of Data to Third Parties
In order to fulfil your mandate it may also be necessary to pass on your data to third parties (e.g. counterparties, substitutes, insurance companies, service providers to whom we make data available, etc.) courts or authorities. Your data will only be forwarded on the basis of the GDPR, in particular in order to fulfil your mandate or with your prior consent.
Furthermore, note that within the framework of our legal representation and support, we will regularly receive your factual and case-related information from third parties.
Some of the above recipients of your personal data are outside your country or process your personal data there. The level of data protection in other countries may not be the same as in Austria. However, we only transfer your personal data to such countries if either the EU Commission has decided that they have an adequate level of data protection or if we conclude standard contractual clauses (2010/87/EC and/or 2004/915/EC) or if there is another reason for authorisation ISd Art 44 ff GDPR (e.g. your informed consent).
6. Notice of Data Leaks
We make every effort to ensure that data breaches are detected at an early stage and, if necessary, reported immediately to you or the responsible supervisory authority, taking into account the respective data categories that are affected.
7. Storage of Data
We will not keep data longer than is necessary to fulfil our contractual or legal obligations and to avert any liability claims, unless the data is also processed for other legitimate purposes (e.g. self-advertisement within the meaning of point 9) In the latter case the data will be deleted when the purpose lapses.
